Our family of four had a fabulous time on this excursion with Captain Gale. He gave an excellent overview of wildlife in the area and local Ft Myers history. It is easy to see that he loves what he does and enjoys sharing his knowledge with others. The dolphins jumping in the wake was the highlight for my daughter!! The shelling was excellent and I appreciated his help in identifying my finds. From start to finish I can only rate this tour as EXCELLENT! I would absolutely take this tour again.

We went on the the evening sunset dolphin and the stand-up paddle/shelling tour with Captain Gale. The tours were very fantastic and informative. The cruise we saw many dolphins and wildlife with a great sunset into the evening. Captain Gale was quite knowledgeable and a great guy to take the tour as he was an informed naturalist with much knowledge about the many different species of birds and marine animals. The paddle board tour was equally fantastic!! Gale spoke about the different trees, wildlife and the different shells when we hit the beach. Would highly recommend both tours and definitely ask for Captain Gale!! Would do this tour again.

My husband and I live in Cape Coral. We had relatives in town. We were trying to find a boat tour on short notice and this tour was available. The lady I booked it with on the phone was very nice and informative. When we arrived we were pleasantly surprised that it was a small tour. It was very personal and there was plenty of space on the boat. The captain was very friendly, and fun. He was very knowledgeable about the area and we got an up close look at many dolphins and a few manatees. The captain made each person on the boat feel like they were the only ones on the boat. I can't say enough good things about this tour. It is definitely worth the money. We will be bringing all our guest in this tour.

We weren't sure we were going to be able to go out because of the weather, but it cleared up and we went out. Captain Gale gave a great cruise. Saw lots of manatee then enjoyed the show of dolphins...and boy did they put on a show!! They were jumping clear out of the water! The group we brought from Oklahoma were thrilled with the trip. Thanks Captain Gale for a great evening!

During our visit we did the 9-12 morning dolphin & shelling cruise and it was fantastic!! Captain Gale was fantastic and knew everything about everything! We had a blast and it was a great value for the money! We saw a ton if dolphins and they were even jumping next to the boat! So amazing! I can't wait to do it again :)
